State agencies. State agencies are expressly prohibited by law from engaging in sexual harassment (FL Stat. § 110.1221). Agencies are required to provide employees with a copy of the state regulation defining sexual harassment and a copy of the procedures for investigating and resolving sexual harassment complaints. Employees must sign an acknowledgment that they understand and accept the regulation and procedure, and a copy of the acknowledgment must be kept in the employee personnel files.
Effective July 1, 2022, it is unlawful employment discrimination to subject an employee, as a condition of employment, to training that espouses, promotes, advances, inculcates, or compels the individual to believe certain enumerated concepts constitute discrimination based on race, color, sex, or national origin. Training is not unlawful if it is presented in an objective manner without endorsement of the concepts.
